Ombudsman program needs volunteers

— “The bottom line is, this is their residence, and everyone needs to remember that,” Gehrig said. “It is critical that they have rights, they have the option to have a meal they enjoy, or having hot coffee when they want it, that when they ring the bell to go to the bathroom that someone comes in a decent amount of time. We are there to ensure that they have those basic rights.”

There is a four-day training session upcoming for those interested in volunteering. It will be held Sept. 3 - 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Those interested in either Essex or Clinton County can contact Gehrig at 563-9058.
